Cape Cod girls ain't got no combs
Haul away, haul away
They brush their hair with codfish bones
And we're bound away for Australia

So heave away, me bully, bully boys
Haul away, haul away
Heave her up and don't you make a noise
And we're bound away for Australia

Cape Cod kids ain't got no sleds
They slide down the hills on codfish heads

Cape Cod girls ain't got no frills
They tie their hair with codfish gills

Cape Cod cats ain't got no tails
They lost them all in the northeast gales
